"There's a plant in the window...plants have to be watered!"
4 April 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Robert Carradine is a hack L.A. musician who lives near an abandoned Air Force Base, Cherie Currie is his semi-psychic girlfriend who hears a strange, high-pitched sound coming from within. That's the set-up for a slow yet engrossing science-fiction story which is by turns credible and yet too mechanical. The middle portion of the film sags with the weight of far too much technical jargon and yammering from government yahoos. Once things get back to Carradine and Currie, the movie recovers for an emotional conclusion. This is the best role Currie's had since 1980's "Foxes" and Carradine is an easy, giving actor who never mugs or hams. Keenan Wynn is also good in support, and the desert locales for the ending are well-captured. A minor offering from New World Pictures, though a highly competent one. **1/2 from ****
